The city's pitch: "Mansfield is a dynamic, growing community with a rich history and a bright future. In its more than 100 years Mansfield has developed from a rural, farming community to a bustling suburban city of more than 50,000 people. Yet despite the explosive growth this city has seen in recent years, Mansfield has not lost its friendly atmosphere or its small-town feel. With a quality of life considered to be one of the best in [North Texas], Mansfield offers more than 240 acres of beautiful parkland, a historic downtown area, recreational opportunities for young and old, superior rated schools, quality housing, and a growing business community. All of these elements make Mansfield a wonderful place to live and raise a family and a popular place to do business."
